For those of you that bought my reflector bracket (to go along with FAZR6's FE kit), be sure to check your rear shock setting. I noticed last night that my bracket was gouging up the top of my rear hugger, and more than likely forcing the hugger into the tire. This being the case, I realized that my shock wasn't set properly, and adjusted (bumped it up to 5, from 3) to keep me from doing that.

Yeah I learned the hard way the other night when riding 2 up for the first time. It dugged in into the fender quite a bit. But I ain't mad a ya.

Hum .... maybe that's how that goug got in my hugger??? I'll have to take another look at it see if it lines up with the bracket. Details Details
I never expected to keep the bike lookin showroom quality anyway, especially with how much I ride. I do what I can but things are going to happen .... I'm more worried about the scratches I found in my tank anyway.
Either a small stone or bug with a hard shell got stuck between my leg and tank while I was ridin and left some small scratches. That or someone did it .... one of those things I'll never know for sure about.

That's why I picked up the tank slapper stuff. From the looks of it, it's saved me from a few pretty good scratches/gouges.

If anyone that's bought the bracket from me wants, I will remake a wider bracket that should hopefully put the reflectors out farther and away from the hugger.

I think it's more a sign of improper shock adjustment than anything though.
